Octavia on Fifth Avenue
Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Pale Male and Octavia

Today both Pale Male and Octavia were both at the northern reaches of their territory.  Pale Male was on a building at 87th and Fifth, which has a nice view of the Reservoir and the birds migrating south.  Today, that included a kettle of Broad-winged Hawks and two Bald Eagles. Octavia was up north as well and I found her perched on the north side of the Met. This northern area is full of food in the fall, with rodents eating apples near the Hamilton Statue, song birds that die due to collisions with the Temple of Dendur windows, and rodents on the Birdle Path south and east of the Reservoir.
